German by passport, European by heart, free in mind.
The German artist Thomas Bienert is born in the German Democratic Republic and now lives and works in Düsseldorf. Thomas has studied visual communication and worked as Art and Creative Director in international advertising networks.
„I feel divided: my entire advertising life I‘ve produced synthetical emotions but from the very beginning I always worked on something completely diﬀerent as an artist– trying to grab the real life.“
Every image is built out of pieces of nature as leaves or trees. For Thomas they are perfect to visualize a human‘s life because of their similar life circle – birth, life and death. Thomas Bienert works with classical cameras as Nikon and Leica as well as iPhone and Apple computer. He never uses photo-filters. He creates his digital art all by himself.
